Reading Baseball: Confessions of a Sore Loser

If you’ve listened over the past 17 years to Reading Baseball, you know Pete Peterson has a competitive spirit when it comes to athletic endeavors. It even manifested itself during his career as an English professor at SIU-Carbondale.

But, in this edition of Reading Baseball, Pete reveals his dark side as a sore loser, which he hopes doesn’t filter down to his grandson, who is starting to play Little League baseball.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard "Pete" Peterson, author of Growing Up With Clemente and editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
